Diving In Placencia Belize
Belize scuba diving adventures are literally right outside your door. At Hatchet Caye, you are only minutes from some of the best diving in Belize. Our PADI dive operation can offer individual attention if needed and there’s never an issue of overcrowding.
The Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve is a protected area in the central part of Belize’s barrier reef. It contains some of the healthiest and most thriving parts of the reef and is host to over 25 species of reef fish. It is also the area where, at certain times of the year, gigantic but gentle Whale Sharks migrate. This area, only minutes away from Hatchet Caye, makes for exceptional and unforgettable diving.
Although fishing in this protected area is not permitted, divers can enjoy a rare treat: spear-fishing lion fish! These invasive lion fish are hazardous to our reef and it is not against the law to fish for them. We provide tridents for divers who want to spear-fish lion fish and we can cook up a tasty meal from your catch at our restaurant.
Whether you bring your own gear or rent from our inventory, our guides set up all the equipment on the boat for you and wash and securely store them at the end of the day. Our guides are flexible and can arrange diving trips on your timetable. Juices, water, snacks or even lunch can be provided on request. We offer custom diving experiences as well as diving certification and lessons.
